Caltrans finally extended the guardrails along both sides of Highway 1 at the San Pedro Creek Bridge. We editorialized for this safety improvement when the new bridge first opened, so we are glad to see it getting done. Better late than never. See the above press release for details. Next, we need Caltrans to clean up the weeds and debris alongside Highway 1 going up to the tunnels. It's a real mess, and it endangers life and limb for motorists and bicyclists on that sloppy stretch of highway.
Late Monday night, a motorist on Sharp Park Road at Skyline reported that a reckless driver was weaving in and out of traffic and "flipping off other drivers," according to Pacifica Police. Alan Wald wonders when "flipping off" became official law enforcement terminology.
Pacifica Police Captain Joseph Spanheimer says: "Two officers responded to the reporting party's call and were unable to find the man with the knife. The circumstances were documented in an incident report: 11:15 a.m. at 08-24-2016 It appears that the man said he had the knife in case a dog came near him. At no time did the man remove the knife or brandish it in a threatening manner. No crime appears to have been committed and the man's identity remains unknown at the time."
